A Trip to England


$30 General Admission / $20 Student
House Concert

Join us for the annual Anchorage Fine Arts Society soirée! RSVP by purchasing a ticket before July 28, 2019. Doors open at 7:30 for beverages and snacks, concert begins at 8:00. This concert will take place in Stuckagain Heights. Receive address after purchasing your ticket.

The program includes gems by some of our favorite English composers. We can hear and imagine the clouds, winds, storms, and landscapes from Wenlock Edge and Peter Grimes, as well as the influences of World War I. Vaughn Williams and Butterworth offer us two very different settings of the same text. The songs in this program which typically require one person to embody multiple characters, will be interpreted by having each character played by a different person.

Henry Purcell: Fantasia Upon One Note

George Butterworth: Six Songs from a Shropshire Lad, Is My Team Ploughing
Ralph Vaughan Williams: On Wenlock Edge, Is My Team Ploughing

Franck Bridge: Fantasy for Piano Quartet

Edward Elgar: Piano Quintet
